Jessie Ware’s Tender, Epic New Single Will Lift Your Spirits This Week

“Say you love me, just for today.”

1. Jessie Ware, British heroine of downtempo pop and R&B, released a new single today and it’s maybe the most ambitious of her career.

2. Called “Say You Love Me,” the song is timeless and elegant like Jessie herself. But it has a swelling, gospel-inspired, sing-from-the-mountain-tops grandeur that recalls Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson’s big-hearted, unironic ballads from the ’90s.

4. “Say You Love Me” was co-written by Ed Sheeran and produced by BenZel — the new tag-team of super producer Benny Blanco and Sam Smith-collaborator Two Inch Punch — who also helmed Ware’s previous single, the shimmering, understated “Tough Love.”

5. You can get Jessie’s sophomore album, Tough Love, on October 6. Clearly that date can’t come soon enough.
